Travelling with pets to Ireland
Bringing pets to Ireland has always been strictly controlled in order to prevent diseases such as rabies from getting into the country. Contact your veterinary to get information about the documentation and paperwork you need in order to fly with your pet to Ireland.
To visit Ireland with your pet, you will need:
- A pet passport
- The veterinary must give the pet an anti-rabies vaccine before departure. It is utterly important that this is done at least 21 days before travel, or else, the pet will not be allowed to enter Ireland.
- If your pet does not have the mandatory microchip (tattoos are not valid), while receiving the anti-rabies vaccine, the microchip can be implanted. The microchip will identify the animal with its passport. Before departure, you have to make sure that the microchip works.
- If your pet is too young and cannot be vaccinated, a blood test will be necessary.
- Dogs need to have a veterinary certificate that shows they have been treated for tapeworm with Praziquantel between 24 and 42 hours before departure. This must be specified in the passport and issued by the veterinary.
we highly recommend you to visit your veterinary for him to give you detailed information about the procedures you must follow before travelling with your pet to Ireland.
